7:41 am
would say that it will be hard to get money out of the ballot proposition business or even out of the campaign. the only answer will have to be more social media, more union involvement, more civic involvement, more ordinary people giving their small donations adding up to many millions of dollars to counteract those of you just write checks for tin or 20 or $30 million. >> yes i voted yes. one never knows and sent to were still voting i want to respect their choice on election day. i think everything i can tell the notion of taking their quarter percent sales tax and asking those were the top 1% to help was out in

balance. this election is either more toward me and mine and the what i can do for myself or what can i do for myself with my neighbors with my fellow citizens and investing to our school district to our counties, to our president and congress into the legislator. >> the big issue the question is what is the capacity of america to invest through its collective institution called the government. a lot of people thi is only run by scoundrels and fools. and other people say wait a minute here we have our flaws but so does every other institution in this society. it is the only one where we come together to take care of the basic stuff throws for example. if you go down the street we need to have some road repair. if you look at our school as you will realize that is for our kids off if you look at all the other

8:07 am
for you if you are one of those people are sitting on a mail in ballot at this time. keep in mind you have to drop off at a polling place in the polling place by 8:00 p.m. tonight. if you mail it to day it is postmarked today they will get there it according to the people of the registrar's office they say no it does not matter it has to be in their hands by tonight. we talked to them at 7:00 a.m. they said one of the most heartbreaking things in terms of running an election is to stop by the post office to borrow and come back with nine or 1000 ballots that basically mean nothing because they cannot be counted and it turned in to recycle paper. you have to come in and here is this gentleman that is turning out. the see of it to talk to him. >> sir we are with channel for why did you mellon ballot as opposed to coming over there and voting a person? >> honestly, i just had a
8:08 am
family at home and business to run. i do not always have time to stop the business to come in and do it that way. >> how come he did not met last week? >> i actually did i got back because i forgot to sign it. >> in a rush and for it to the simplest things. >> thank you so much so now you're vote should count he is marking it off. everything is all systems go for this gentleman. perhaps it is the best thing to do for you to drop off so you can get it personally looked at by the people at the office to say yes and no your good to go. if not they will sing you and give you a pen and you sign it. your signature has to be similar. it doesn't have to be exact as in previous elections. it has to be similar. >> what did the registrar to stimuli this morning? he said a lot of people forget the signature seems simple people forget. and there was a guy. >> i have proof which it saw him he had to commit. it tried to mail it it did not work he got it in here at
8:09 am
least he can do better. by the way he forgot to get one of these stickers. people want to drop by to get a i vote sticker. thankou y will. the time --we will be back.
8:10 am
8:11 am
8:12 am
the importance a cycle ohio and florida here's a look at orlando on the left-hand side. on the right we have blue-ohio. you can see the long line that voters are facing. in many precincts they have to wait from one to four hours to cast their votes. we're lucky here in california the voting going smoothly. so for our weather is great. we have no sense to deal with. power outages flooding are any glitches that cause the polling places to back up. we will keep you posted throughout the morning on election night with the results. the results will be coming into kron 4 started to 8:00 p.m. and will last until the results comment. you can't see results on our website facebook and whether we will be back with more in a moment.
8:13 am
8:14 am
8:15 am
we have our kron for political analyst ykis. is its new soon to say that- michael yaki. the numbers will come in very fast. is possible you can see certain trends. first states will come in will be on the
8:16 am
eastern seaboard in hampshire, virginia and florida. that will really be whether or not it will be long or short night. in terms of the presidential race. we'll have all local coverage here. the east coast polls closing at seven we will get the results coming in. which do you look for more or i'll 4 as the one that a bit of that record. >> i think the first one is virginia. those polls close at 7:00 p.m. to as 4:00 our time. the numbers to come in about 7:00 p.m. or 9:00 p.m. our time. if virginia is trending towards obama it will be a good night for the president. it is not in will be a lone night. the event for president obama is he has many more pathways to get to 71 that mitt romney does. if for example he does not when virginia it is ok. but on the other hand a lot of romney pathways require florida and virginia. you have to see that as it flows over when
8:17 am
ohio comes in and that will be the real test. >> the mathematicians have broken down it looks like there are 400 or more ways for obama. when you look at what the formula and what it would take it is limited. >> it is a much more limited pass at it and realistic pass a very few options as compared to president obama. >> compared to zero, that special while they have more provisional votes. those to not have to be fully counted until the resisted. is it possible this could drag on. >> for two things at a possible with all i want if the race is somewhere between 100 and hundred 52 logic thousand to the two then yes the provisionals will make a difference because it would depend on how they break that could make consequence on the final outcome second if they finish close between 15,000 so that as the automatic trigger for a recount in ohio. my gut feeling is we may not get their but i do not know, what do i know?
8:18 am
giving more than the average joe. >> if you are a romney supporter this is what you're thinking. you are hoping that the polls are skewed that they are not measuring the actual intensity of your turn out. you had better get out to vote operation mccain did in 2008 that involved in to help the trend line to different. what you're seeing is all the polls are broken toward you the last week. the basically if you look at every single poll that's come out 95 percent of them have obama ahead one or two. in at least all the swing states. for you is a question of turnout. forgetting those people suppose. it is the same adage people may say i liked this candid i am going to vote for him but the real question is are you actually going to get to the polls about the ballot and get out of both. you can take the horse to water but
8:19 am
that you have to make him drink. >> when we talk about physical obstacles and helping voters get to oppose it is ok to stick them on buses and dry them. like they have to do back east because of sandy. they have power outages. i think was 800 polling places have no power without is down to 100 that is a lot of people. >> and even for seniors for long lines of warm weather makes a big difference. there are questions of interpretation if you are in a live at 7:59 p.m. or they obliged to keep it open even if the polls supposedly close at 8:00 p.m.. there are basically about 5000 places all of the country with the papers being ready to submit because they understand and people are trying trthat it was the polls at the last minute. depending on how long the line to our it depends on how long the polls will be
8:20 am
opened if the states. >> important toemember that for want the popular vote by 1000 votes but lost the election. the only possibility is if obama was an electoral college and romney was a popular vote. it is probably because of two factors if that happens because of democrats turn out and york and new jersey. and a lower turnout in california because of wanting to win. >> will check with michael route the evening he will be your starting at 54 our election coverage. you can connect with him through twitter his handle its adyaki block. a reminder of our coverage that is it kicks in at 8:00 p.m. when the polls was start to close and then we will stay updated nonstop coverage all night. and go to our web site this book and sweater. >> the weather is nice route the bay area.
